Default RC10 body on RC10T

Or vice versa?
I searched and looked at some pictures, but would still like a more definitive answer.
My old RC10T body is about toast and I'd like to put a buggy body on it if I can, so that less dirt/water/etc. will get up into the tub.
I'm sure there's probably a conversion.
Just wondering if its a straight fit to put the buggy bod on the truck chassis or how much it entails.

Thanks for all the input!

And... as an aside... Why are these "buggy only" tires?

I figure if you're looking at this thread you'll probably be able to answer the 2.2" tire on a 2.2" rim question fairly easily. Its just that the description if you scroll down the page says "buggy only". I'm guessing the width is different, but by how much?
Proline does make a similar tire for trucks... but I don't like the tread pattern for my use nearly as much.

the buggy body for the rc10 will fit on the 10t. justtrim it as needed and your golden.

now as far as buggy tires on truck rims i have to say don't waste your money. you are correct about the width being wider on the truck than it is on the buggy. but you will also need to look at the aspect of the side wall height of the tires also. the buggy tire it a lot lower profile than the truck tire. if you get the buggy tire to fit on the truck rim you will also make the buggy tire lower profile when you are stretching it out to fit the width. so ether stick with a truck tire or use buggy rims also.

Can anyone recommend a rear 2.2 truck tire with very similar tread design?

Ya, that was the one I was referring to that I didn't like as much.
This one is a bit different from both but the wife likes it too!
